D.J. Augustin just ended the Suns' season with a sky hook.
Suns went Hack-an-Adams (Haka Adams?), and he missed both. Don't think you can take him off the floor, though. Too important defensively.
The Suns are putting on a fourth-quarter clinic on how to prove you aren't worthy.

Something about the Morris twins brings it out of Westbrook. Four of his 15 T's have come against the Suns this year, including an ejection.
Took 57 seconds for Russell Westbrook to get technical foul No. 15 against the Morris twins and the Suns

Suns bottom 10 DREB% (tho they've been better lately), & not v good at helping Len when he rotates to stop penetration. Big night for Enes?
